PRHYME REVEALS WHAT LEGENDARY EMCEE DIDN’T MAKE THE ALBUM

In part two of WatchLoud‘s interview with Nickel and Preemo, the duo reveal what legendary emcee couldn’t make the album and how sample clearances helped the creation of the album.

“The concept was to have somebody who was a wizard with the samples, sample somebody who creates his own music so we won’t have to clear anything,” Royce tells WatchLOUD.com. “And we’ll just have a project that we could put out for the fans. Somewhere along the line it just ended up being an album. I kept having to push Preeme for ‘1 more or 2 more.’ Every time we got to a point that felt like we were somewhere I felt like we needed one more thing to round it out. I started to get more of a vision as we were doing it. The Adriane Young thing was a way for me to work with him and do this project with Premier that I’ve been wanting to do since ’99.”

The last time the Mash Out Posse and Busta Rhymes were on a song together was the remix to “Ante Up” so best believe that another collaboration was long overdue. “Broad Daylight (187 Pt. 2)” is off of the upcoming Street Certified EP (executive produced by DJ Premier) that celebrates two decades of M.O.P. and drops on November 18th. Now, enough reading and listen to the tandem “off your on switch.”
